Trivia This film marked the first time Pixar had released two films in one year, following the release of Inside Out (2015) in June. See more »
Goofs Spot finds four other humanlike creatures and goes to them. Arlo is standing several feet in front of them. He begins to push some dirt by using his nose. A close-up then shows him using his nose to draw a circle around the five others but he is standing much too far away to be able to do this. See more »
